Systematic approach to cooking.
Setting standards. Simple and efficient.

Successful casual dining concepts are characterised by a sophisticated catering system which stands out with excellent food quality and fast, uncomplicated service. It is crucial that every outlet can produce the food on the menu easily and efficiently, and to a standardised and consistently reproducible quality. This reliability is what wins over customers and encourages them to come back.

Benefits for you at a glance:
  • Same quality of food in all restaurants
  • Easy to operate even for untrained staff
  • No checking or monitoring
  • Best cooking results every time
  • Minimum running costs
  • Automatic cleaning and descaling

Your solution:
The SelfCookingCenter®.

The new RATIONAL SelfCookingCenter® stands for the most efficient production processes and outstanding quality. Dishes are cooked measurably faster, with distinctly more flavour, and always turn out exactly how you like them. Its simple and safe operation is what guarantees that results are always perfect, regardless of who is using the appliance. And because you use a lot less raw materials, energy and water, and save a considerable amount of time, you'll see the benefits on your balance sheets too.

Our motivation was and remains to make your work as easy as possible. That’s why we’ve equipped our new SelfCookingCenter® with four intelligent functions, making it into an assistant that stands for quality, ease of use and efficiency.


Your desired result

Four intelligent functions:
For cooking quality, ease of operation and efficiency.

  • iCookingControl®.
    Simplicity through cooking intelligence.
  • HiDensityControl.
    Precision means top quality.
  • iLevelControl.
    Intelligent mixed loading.
  • Efficient CareControl.
    Intelligent automatic cleaning.

Customised operation according to your needs.

We all make errors. But very rarely with "MyDisplay". We have developed this function to reduce errors to a minimum when operating the SelfCookingCenter®. The principle is straightforward:

Using "MyDisplay" you can limit the range of appliance functions and options to specific processes and users. Only information that is relevant for your staff or the particular time of day will be displayed on the screen.

Easy handling on the display of the steamer

User error? Not a chance!

Automatic HACCP documentation.
Optimum hygiene safety.

In terms of hygiene, you can rest assured with the SelfCookingCenter®. The precise measurement and regulation of all cooking parameters means that every product is always cooked perfectly hygienically. You can provide full associated proof at any time:

All HACCP-relevant data – from cooking to hygienically perfect self-cleaning of the cooking cabinet by Efficient CareControl – is automatically recorded and saved for ten days in the SelfCookingCenter®. This data is available at the push of a button. It can also be archived via USB at any time. So, without additional effort or expense, you can have full security in the documentation of all relevant HACCP data.

Seamless data storage of HACCP data

Seamless data storage

KitchenManagement System.
Set quality standards.

Thanks to the KitchenManagement System, RATIONAL appliances can be managed directly from the PC. Quickly enter cooking procedures for your SelfCookingCenter® on the PC and send this information with a click of the button to all the appliances in the network. This even works when the appliances are used at different locations. This means weekly promotions, special-menu days and all the occasions that require new cooking processes can be adapted to and organised centrally with the minimum of effort.

RATIONAL condensation hoods.
Fresh air in your kitchen.

The condensation technology in UltraVent absorbs and dissipates steam. An additional external connection or extension to an existing exhaust air system is not required for this airrecirculation hood. Installation is simple and it can be retrofitted at any time.
